'Would be unbelievable', '100% snap up' – Leeds Super Fans react to reported attacker deal

This is part of a regular series from our panel of Leeds United Super Fans. Each week, our Super Fans will deliver their verdicts on the biggest talking points and news stories around Elland Road and Thorp Arch.


The names are coming thick and fast as Leeds United look to make two outfield signings in the last two weeks of the window.

One of the most exciting players we’ve been linked with in this window is Jarrod Bowen, and that came from Alan Nixon in the Sun on Thursday.

The proposition is a £3m loan move followed by a £12m fee to make it permanent if Leeds get promoted.

Putting aside whether it’s feasible or not, is he the man Leeds need?

With Eddie Nketiah gone, Leeds need a striker, and that’s not Bowen, although he can play as a number 10.

Does that matter? He’s scored 16 goals in the Championship this season. Patrick Bamford has 10 while playing for a much better side creating way more chances.

Is Bowen the solution to the Leeds problem at the moment? That’s the question we asked our esteemed panel of Super Fans. This is what they had to say…

The majority of our Super Fans would love to see Bowen at Elland Road, although some are still holding out hope that a deal for Che Adams could be resurrected.

It would be a leftfield move but one that we’d be 100% behind. Bowen is Premier League-level and that’s where we’re heading.
